February 6, 2009 question

Only Charles knew that Bill Gates was the source of yesterday's inspiration. And for that, Charles wins an all expense paid trip to anywhere in the world . . . well, a virtual tour anyway. /inspiration.

Okay, on to today's news, which includes a celebration of Pat Summitt's 1,000th career coaching victory as head of the Tennessee Lady Vols. One thousand wins is a so amazing it's a joke. It's not the kind of thing that happens in real life college basketball, it's something you could duplicate on the Easy level of a video game. But the gigantic 1K figure isn't the most astounding part of what that woman has done as a head coach. The number that will make your jaw drop so low you could fit a basketball in there is this one:

186. That's the number of times the Lady Vols have lost with Pat Summitt on the bench. Wins: 1,000. Losses: 186. That's an 84% winning percentage. To put it in Vegas terms, if you bet against the Lady Vols, you are gonna lose. And if you bet on the Lady Vols, you're not gonna make a lot of money. Congratulations, Ms. Summitt. You are ridiculous. Here's today's question:

What character did Bronson Pinchot breathe life into (over-the-top accent included) in the 1986 television sitcom, Perfect Strangers? (spelling counts: whoever comes closest wins it all)
